Announcement of Representative Office Establishment in Vietnam

JAPAN NUS CO., LTD. (also known as JANUS; Head office: Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo; President: Yukio Kishimoto) hereby announces that JANUS has established a representative office in Hanoi City, Vietnam.

Many Japanese companies are attempting to expand their businesses to Vietnam, which is maintaining a high economic growth rate with its shift to a market economy as seen in the industrialization, modernization of the country, diversification, and multilateral development of economic external relations. While the economy of the country is expected to maintain its positive growth, rapid urbanization and industrialization are causing swift degradation of the environment; this is a result of water pollution through wastewater and sewage discharge from factories and homes, air pollution caused by emissions from power plants and automobiles, and so on. Since the public has become aware about the health risks associated with these environmental occurrences, the local government and companies have started to consider their actions and take measures for reducing these risks.

Considering the above circumstances, JANUS, an environmental and energy consulting firm, decided to establish a representative office in Vietnam in order to contribute to the sustainable development of Vietnam with the experience and knowledge that JANUS has gained in Japan. The representative office plans to conduct market research, establish an information network, and support projects in Vietnam.

JANUS plans to accelerate our business overseas, starting with this establishment of an office in Vietnam which is our first outside Japan.
